All Natural Thrush Preventer for Horses

This time of year my horse paddock can get a little squishy, with all the spring rain. Muddy wet hooves tend to be a perfect breading ground for thrush. So I like to try to stop the thrush before it starts, rather than trying to get rid of it later. Here is how I do it:

  1. I pick out my horses hooves really well everyday.
  2. I spray them every couple of days with an all natural tea tree oil and vinegar solution

2 cups apple cider vinegar

1 cup water

20-30 drops of tea tree oil

If my horse do get a case of thrush, it is best to use a more traditional thrush treatment. This is more for preventive measures, although I know some people that use it to treat as well. Always check with your vet or farrier before using a product on your horse.
